4 Stages of the consultation process 1. Consultant is assigned Overview The consultant is assigned to the school by the relevant IB office after the school receives recognition as a candidate school. Consultant s tasks at this stage Before the consultation starts, the consultant must carry out the following tasks. 1. Become familiar with the school to be supported. It is necessary for the consultant to: a. read and analyse the Application for candidacy b. read and analyse the Feedback on Application for candidacy: part I and part II c. read the IB letter recognizing the school s candidate status d. visit the school website (if applicable) e. be aware of the educational system(s) that the school follows (that is, if the school is mandated to follow any external policies). 2. Further analyse and understand the practices at the school that need further reflection or planning in order to comply with the requirements for authorization. 3. Identify the areas that need further clarification from the school in order to ensure that the advice will be effective. 4. Identify the actions that need to be prioritized in the school s journey towards authorization. 2. Consultation starts Overview The consultant and the school discuss the consultation schedule and the timing of the consultation visit. The consultant provides 20 hours of remote consultation in a candidate year and keeps a log of his/her contact with the school as evidence of the time spent. The IB office will specify the means by which the log will be kept. Consultant s tasks at this stage When the consultation starts, the consultant must carry out the following tasks. 1. Contact the school in writing to officially begin the consultation process. 2. Identify the IB coordinator as a point of contact and reference at the school in order to avoid multiple voices reaching the consultant. Page 3

Start building a relationship of trust with the school to ensure that he/she is seen as an advisor and not as an assessor. 5. Agree on a date for the consultation visit. In order to do so, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of organizing it at different times during the consultation process (see Appendix B ). 6. Confirm that the school has maintained the requirements for candidacy. When the school was recognized as a candidate school, certain requirements (see Appendix A, column 1) were in place. If any of these are no longer in place, the consultant should contact the regional office. In particular, the consultant must ensure that the school has maintained the requirements related to : the school s multiple campus status, where applicable the school s partnership status (for MYP), where applicable the length of the is in accordance with the requirements (PYP and MYP) the name of head and coordinator. If these have changed, the consultant must ensure that they are correctly identified in IB documents. 7. Provide guidance to the school on how to address issues highlighted in the candidate letter. The candidate letter to the school may have highlighted items that need to be addressed as soon as the consultation process starts (see Appendix A, column 2). The consultant needs to ensure that the school understands the implications of these requirements and that they have planned actions to address these requirements. If there are issues concerning the school s legal status or its ability to address the requirements, the consultant should contact the IB office. 8. Additionally, ensure as early as possible that: the school understands the professional development activities the staff can participate in and that the staff professional development plan is consistent with the school s expectations and the IB requirements the coordinator has followed the necessary steps to provide all teachers with access to the OCC the coordinator is familiar with the IB -specific documents that will help him/her to further understand the implementation of the (DP only) there are conversations with the DP coordinator regarding the possibility of the school offering DP courses from group 6, if these have not been included in the DP courses proposal. 9. Pose questions and verify information stated in the documents submitted by the school, if necessary, in order to enhance his/her understanding of the school. The consultant may request further information from the school where appropriate. 3. Consultation process moves forward During this stage, the consultant maintains contact with the school as per the agreed schedule, conducts a visit to the school, writes a report and continues the remote consultation. These tasks are discussed in further detail in the section below. Page 4

6 Remote consultation Overview The consultant maintains regular contact with the school in order to support the school in working towards meeting the requirements for authorization. The consultant must use the Guide to school authorization, the Programme standards and practices and all relevant IB publications to support the school through the consultation process. The consultant will also find the Consultant report template useful throughout this stage in order to guide the school in its understanding of what is necessary for a practice to be considered in place. Consultant s tasks at this stage As the consultation process moves forward, the consultant will be working with the school on an ongoing basis on the following. It is important to note that these items may need to be revisited at different times throughout the consultation process. 1. Ensure that the school understands: a. the authorization process b. the Programme standards and practices and their role in the implementation of the at the school c. the requirements for authorization. 2. Ensure that the school understands the consultant s role in providing advice and keeping the school well-informed and the pedagogical leadership team s role in making the decisions for the school. 3. Support the school in building and strengthening its knowledge of the s, always referring to IB documents when providing answers to questions. 4. Ensure an understanding of the difference between practices that must be in place and those that must be in progress, as described in the Guide to school authorization. 5. Make the school aware that most of what must be in progress is normally incorporated in what must be in place. For this purpose, the consultant must discuss the practices in progress with the school, showing the relationship between them and the ones that must be in place. This relationship is identified in the Consultant report template. 6. Use information from the Feedback on Application for candidacy: part II to support the school in determining priorities when planning towards meeting the requirements to be in place at authorization. 7. Ensure that the school understands the role of the action plan as described in the Programme evaluation guide and self-study questionnaire. Whilst completing the applications for candidacy and authorization, the school is asked to submit an action plan based on objectives drawn from the Programme standards and practices. Once the school is authorized, the IB expects the school to continue developing the at the school, refining and further developing its practices in order to achieve the standards, in accordance with the Programme standards and practices. To this end, the school is expected to Page 5

7 continue updating the action plan in line with the priorities set out by the school, which should include the IB recommendations from previous evaluation or authorization processes. The action plan will help the school to define its objectives and to monitor its progress towards achieving these. It will also help to ensure that a culture of ongoing reflection and improvement permeates the school. 8. When working with the action plan: ensure that the school s set objectives are consistent with the requirements for authorization and that they address the practices that must be in place at the time of authorization discuss the feasibility of the proposed timeline based on the actions and planning needed and the school s situation. This will also be linked to the resources available to the school.

Finalize the date of the two-day consultation visit and ensure that the IB is informed. 10. Contact the appropriate IB office if a situation arises in which he/she feels unable to respond suitably. Consultation visit Overview The consultant conducts a mandatory consultation visit. The two-day consultation visit provides an opportunity for the school to be in contact with the consultant, to ask questions and to receive feedback and advice at that time. The consultant will review the progress made by the school in its work towards meeting the requirements for authorization. He/she will use the Consultant report template to focus the discussions and to record findings on which to provide feedback. Consultant s tasks at this stage The consultant must carry out the following tasks. 1. Inform the relevant IB office if there are any changes to the date of the consultation visit. 2. Collaborate with the coordinator in preparing an agenda for the consultation visit. A sample consultation visit agenda for each of the s is provided in Appendix C. In creating the agenda for the visit, it is necessary for the consultant to complete the following tasks. Meet with the pedagogical leadership team of the school. Meet with the IB coordinator to discuss the requirements for authorization and the school s progress towards meeting them. Page 6

9 Continued remote consultation Overview Following the consultation visit, the school considers the consultant report and continues working towards meeting the requirements for authorization. When the consultation resumes following the consultation visit, the consultant will use the consultant visit report in order to focus on specific objectives that need to be achieved as the school works towards authorization. It is possible that some of the abovementioned consultant s tasks will need to be revisited. Consultant s tasks at this stage: The consultant must carry out the following tasks. 1. Revise the action plan with the school to ensure that the actions are achievable and that the timeline is realistic, considering the date on which the school expects to submit the Application for authorization. 2. Advise the school on its readiness to complete and submit Application for authorization based on the progress the school has made in meeting the requirements for authorization. 3.

End of consultation period Overview The consultation process can end at any time, but may not extend past the submission of the Application for authorization. Once the consultation process finishes, the consultant will write a final update on the school s progress. This update will provide feedback on the school s progress from the time of the visit to the end of the consultation period and will identify the school s preparedness to apply for authorization. The consultant will submit this to the IB and the school will receive a copy. The school may choose to use the information from this update when completing the Application for authorization. The candidate phase normally takes two years, but schools may choose to extend their candidacy for one year. If so, the school may benefit from an additional 20 hours of remote consultation for the extended candidate year. It is important to note that if the school needs another consultation visit, the cost for this visit will be charged to the school. Page 8
